Barbarians Within the Gates

A commenter on a social networking site which shall remain nameless said that ‘the kids’ (Note the inverted commas) were rioting because they were ‘crying out for food’. I must say that I had no idea that plasma TVs were edible. Does anyone have a recipe for this delicacy? Wide screen TV casserole sounds simply delightful.

The parents of these rioters should be made to read A Clockwork Orange because, as the parents of Alex discovered, these people turn on those closest to them before they start on everyone else.

The owner of a small high street store, bewildered and distressed at what these people had done to her and her small business, said ‘They were like feral rats’.

I call that an insult to feral rats.

In case anyone was wondering.

Salon.com has an alternative take on the matter:

The untermenschen are always being told to emulate their betters. I guess that’s exactly what they were doing.

    The only word for this is mental but then you are enamoured by the politics of the madhouse.

    Haunting portrait. But don’t you think you run the risk of glamourising mindless violence and senseless thuggery?

    You can’t be happy with the way your life is going. You strike me as a reasonably intelligent woman. Can’t you at least make the effort to leave all this psychiatric shit behind you. That’s the only way you’ll be able to make use of all you have to offer.

    From now on, it’s up to you.
